Potomac Yards Renaissance, Residence Inn Hotel
New construction: Potomac Yards Renaissance and Residence Inn Hotel; Jordan and Skala Engineers
Location: Arlington, Va.
Firm name: Jordan and Skala Engineers
Project type, building type: New construction, hotel
Project duration: 2 years
Project completion date: 2009
Project budget for mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection engineering only: $16 million
The primary challenge of the project was marrying the requirements from the two brands of hotels that occupy the facility. The project comprises a full-service hotel on one side and an extended-stay hotel on the other, joined together by a common parking deck.
The engineering team at Jordan and Skala met regularly with representatives from both brands to ensure that the systems being designed met the needs of both—not too much for the extended stay hotel while not diminishing the full-service hotel.
